Alright, the problem seems to be with sprite_add()

But I'm not sure how to fix this?

Hello and salutations.

I've been quite silent for a while as I've been very busy for the last couple of weeks. My studio is half way finished. I need to build the roof now so I can bring in the furniture and other stuff. I've also been doing some freelance electrical work, IT work fixing computers and network maintenance. I'm also slated to teach some courses later next month on Microsoft Office Training. Needless to say, doing work on my projects have slowed down somewhat but I do look in on the Forum from time to time.

Today i have a lot to talk about but I'm going to focus on just one topic as It relates to an experience I encountered since Monday, as well as I hope you give some feedback to a question I give to you.

Sometime last week, my file-server had crashed due to a Windows update. Luckily i was able to save one of my Backup drives and a huge amount of critical projects and graphics were saved. I lost a lot of my Software I had kept from my younger days, though but that okay. This prompted me to build a new computer with Windows installed to use strictly for Windows stuff.

As for my File-Server, I built another machine and installed Windows 7 Ultimate instead of Windows Server 2016 this time. The previous machine, i installed Windows 7 Ultimate on it and decided to gave it to one of my friends. I didn't install many software except for some games, VLC and Chrome browser. Suffice to say, its enough to get him on the net, play games and look at porn....... :) :)

So I gave it to him fully working but he went and installed 'COMODO AntiVirus' which fucked up the system. First it wont un-install fully
, then the hard drive won't boot, no matter whether I install Linux or Windows. Today I finally got it booting up to Windows desktop, did the Windows updates and installed Avira Antivirus.

With all of ttthhhhaaaatttt said, what recommendations does YOU have for installing 3d games to play. Most of games recommended by Youtube and gamesites are nothing more than Shooter games. I looking for a variety as in Dungeon exploring, Fantasy, Puzzles , mystery. Emphasis should be on the story, rather than the gore and violence.  Mixed content is also welcomed. for example I remember playing one that was a hidden object + match 3 + mystery game before but I can't remember the name. It could also be Openworld like the new Mario game for Nintendo.

lastly, here's the specs on the machine:
  • Gigabyte LGA  motherboard
  • Intel 2.8 Ghz Cpu
  • 4 GB PC2 DRAM
  • Windows 7 Ultimate OS
  • 160 GB Western Digital Hard Drive
  • 160 GB Seagate Hard Drive

thanks for your response and suggestions!

Please read the sticky topic about debugging your game which shows you how to run it through gdb. That will allow you to obtain a full stack trace along with the file names and line numbers of where ENIGMA crashed:

Because I wanted people to be able to make and sell their own versions and arrangements of this extension, it is now 100% free, open source, and public doman. If you want to use this extension to create and sell your own ActiveX-based extensions, i.e. like described in my tutorial, obviously, you may do that as well. :D

I can't think of any reason to favor declaring globals as one instead of zero. But "globalvar" is a GameMaker: Studio construct; ENIGMA just has you say "global var" instead. I can't tell if the compiler recognizes that you are trying to declare a global, or if it just assumes you left our two semicolons and wanted to say a bunch of variable names for no reason. The point is, it's possible globalvar just isn't working (although it seems to be declared in actions.h. Try printing the value in another object to make sure it's being persisted.

Otherwise, it could be an event ordering issue. Try setting it to what you mean instead of to one and then the correct value later.

Yeah I happen to like GMS 1.4 better myself, along with Lonewolff, and quite a few others who feel the same way. A lot of people left the GMC for this very reason it wouldn't surprise me.
Off-Topic / GM2 issues
« Last post by hpg678 on February 19, 2018, 06:25:19 AM »

Recently I built a new computer system, installed Windows 8.1 and for the first time ever, tried out GameMaker 2. As one who has been a user from Gamemaker 4 to Gamemaker Studio 1.4, I must say that I have become very disappointed and critical of GM2.

First, let me state a few of my machine specs
Biostar A68N-2100
AMD 2.1GHZ  Dual core Processor
8 Gb DDR3 1333Mhz Memory
AMD Radeon™ HD8210 Graphics, (on-board Graphic chip)
320Gb HD with Windows 8.1 x64 Installed
320Gb Hd  as a Backup drive
which is more than enough for everyday tasks, playing a few games and trying out Gamemaker 2.

So I finally installed it and as far as first impressions went, I was not impressed. The Graphic Editor is a joke compared to older GM editions. The interface is clunky and a mess and my god, the compiling process takes 45 secs............(no joke).....................45 secs to compile and run. they even have a counter in the upper right hand corner that shows you.

What the HELL?!!! Even to render an empty project takes that long? Then again it may be my system, right? So I installed a portable version of Gamemaker 1.4 and tested. An empty project ran in under 15 secs. Old legacy Gamemaker compiles even faster, about 10 secs or so.

My second criticism is this the overall Workspace, and layout thing. If you happen to have a HUGH monitor or multi-monitors setup then ok. But when one has a standard size 19" monitor, everything is so jumbled. I literally have to grab and scroll every window into view. For a company that has better programmers than myself, even to code something to detect your monitor and setup a suitable layout should have been prudent.

In fact now that I think about it, it is in this area that ENIGMA excells. On my 19" monitor, i have to resize windows into view, but on my widescreen monitor, everything fits.
